Lavender – It’s a classic. It can relieve all kinds of stress and can completely relax you, which will certainly help to put you to sleep. It is even known to provide mild pain relief and improve overall skin health. This floral sensation is brimming with uses, and also smells indubitably delightful.
Frankincense – Frankincense is an excellent addition to your bedtime routine. It’s incredible at relaxing the mind and can even reduce joint pains. Are you feeling a little bit achy? Can help with that too.
Cedarwood – It is known to have energising properties that can increase concentration levels, but it can also relieve stress and tension due to its ability to cloak the body in a shroud of calmness.
Valerian – Smell wise; Valerian root is undoubtedly different. Fortunately, the benefits far outweigh the smell. It naturally aids sleep, calms anxiety, lowers blood pressure and can help with muscle spasms. There is a high chance that its scent will knock you out, but at least you’ll get a peaceful nights rest.
Ylang Ylang – This amazing oil can reduce anxiety and stress. It can help fight depression and can also reduce joint and muscle pains. It’s well known for its aphrodisiac qualities, so if you’re looking to restore the magic in the bedroom, look no further. It naturally increases your libido and lifts your mood, which could certainly help you sleep.
Using Essential Oils
Use a Diffuser – add a few drops and turn it on. Put it on before bedtime and drift off into a sleepy slumber.
Inhale – add about 10 drops of oil to a bowl of warm water. Stir well and then inhale. Do this for a good 5 minutes, and this should induce a mode of sleepiness.
Application – you can apply these oils to your chest, temples, forehead, back of your neck or even on the soles of your feet. It’s always best to dilute the oils in a carrier oil first.
